Kid Krafts - Ladybug Rocks

For our kid craft this week we made some ladybug rocks. These could be any type of bug you'd like. Spiders, bee, maybe even a caterpillar. Get creative and use what you have in the house and in nature. Enjoy!Supplies:
Red and Black craft paint
Pipe cleaners
Felt (to cover bottom)
Paint brushes
Hot glue and gun

Find some bug-shaped rocks in your yard, or on walk around the park.
Paint the rocks red. We only did the front as the felt will cover the bottom. But craft paint dries fast enough that you could do the bottoms without waiting too long to flip over.
Emma did the dots. I did the head and line and helped smooth out the globs of red on the rock.

Hot glue your cut out felt to the bottom of the rock, so it doesn't scratch the floor/tables. And if you choose, hot glue little pipe cleaner antennas.
Then enjoy your little ladybug family. Use as paper weights, or just to play with. Emma kept carrying hers around all night making it dance.
